Representative Mike Hubbard
represents District 79, which includes portions of Auburn and Opelika. He was elected Speaker of the House on December 8, 2010.
A 1983 graduate of the University of Georgia with a degree in radio and television, Hubbard came to Auburn two weeks after graduation where he worked for six years in the Auburn Athletic Department as Associate Sports Information Director. In 1990, he left Auburn University to head up Auburn’s radio and television sports network.
In 1998, Hubbard, in his first attempt at elected office, was elected to a seat in the Alabama House of Representatives. He was re-elected in 2002, 2006 and 2010.
A close ally of Governor Bob Riley, he served as Chairman of the 2003 and 2007 Inaugural Committees that coordinated the inaugural activities of the Governor and all other constitutional officers in Alabama.
Hubbard served two terms as Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party. During his tenure as Chairman, Republicans won all statewide offices and gained control of both houses of the legislature for the first time in 136 years.
Hubbard’s wife, Dr. Susan Hubbard, is a Professor and Associate Dean in Auburn University’s College of Human Sciences. They have two sons, Clayte, and Riley. The Hubbards are active members of the Auburn United Methodist Church.
